Bond’s enemy in Octopussy is the fanatical Soviet General Orlov, whose dying words are inscribed on the bezel of this bold Irony Big: “YES BUT TOMORROW I SHALL BE A HERO OF THE SOVIET UNION”. The black leather and red stitching lend a military look to the strap that holds the brushed stainless steel case and engraved brushed steel bezel. The brushed steel look extends to the dial, which is circumscribed by a minute ring with white hour markers, red minute indices and a black arrowhead at hour 12. General Orlov’s rank is evoked on the dial by a five-point star drawn in black with blank and brass-coloured facets that give it a three-dimensional aspect. Black squelette metal hour and minute hands and a slim red central seconds hand mark the time.
